Andrew Morrison - February 2020
Andy's two-hour February show was inspired by conversations with friends on the topic of our ten favourite albums of the last decade. Struggling to narrow it down to just ten, Andy's ended up with a list of 25, which prompted the theme for this somewhat indulgent show. Andy counts them all down in reverse order by featuring one track from each - several of which he's never played before; the remainder you'll not have heard on air for quite some time. Without giving too much away, just a small handful of acts whose albums appear in this list can be revealed as Slowdive, Lust For Youth, Paul Draper, The Crimea and These New Puritans. Be sure to listen in to find out all 25!

Gareth Jones - February 2020
After taking a break in January, I'm back on Dandelion in February with 2 packed hours. To mark Valentine's Day, there's a song about failed relationships courtesy of The Just Joans and a Welsh song called 'Cariad' from Ani Glass. We also get political with a song dedicated to Boris by Cabinet Of Millionaires teaming up with Zion Train and a song dedicated to Nigel Farage by Jonny Brownbow.
There's a tribute to Neil Innes with tracks by Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and The Rutles plus cover versions of their songs by Frank Sidebottom and Shonen Knife. Following the news that Billie Eilish will be recording the next Bond theme, there's a cover of 'Goldfinger' sung in Portuguese and a rejected Bond song by Pulp.. All this plus 'Secret Songs from the Sixties', the return of 'Soundtracks of the Strange' and brand new releases by Juniore and The Ghost Wolves amongst others.

Leo Gilbert - February 2020
There are two shows from Leo this month.
In the first there are three hours of loveliness and brain scraping in equal measure from the likes of Graham Coxon, The Hinds, Hooray for Earth and HAAi, along with brand new tunes from Holy Fuck, Squarepusher and Special Request.
Travelling the untrod paths of the globe, Leo shares a track from the Afro Deep vol 3 compilation, a song from Guts, a remix of Pat Thomas crops up and there are two more enigmatic, spellbinding tunes from the Guizhou Province of China, courtesy of the Yandong Grand Singers.
Making music that is majestically melodious are Alice Boman, The Innocence Mission, Efterklang (fast becoming Leo’s pet project), the wonderful National Jazz Trio of Scotland and amelia courthouse.
And that is barely the half of it.
In the second (Leo Gilbert Again) he plays a whole host of tunes released mostly in the month or two before the show was pieced together in January.
He plays another excellent track from the new Dylan Henner EP, a brand new tune from New Zealand’s Nadia Reid, an ultra-new song by Dan Deacon (the first on which he has sung in an untreated way), a very, very new track by The Innocence Mission, and possibly even newer is Holy Fuck’s album, a song from which graces the show.
Most surprising and intriguing song of the month goes to Rabbit Island and Nicholas Allbrook: listen and you’ll see what Leo means.
Aside from all of this strange-and-loveliness are tunes by iZem, Humanist and Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, the now-defunct Punčke, a very disturbing tune by CIA Debutante and more noise from Special Request and HAAi.
Balm for your ears comes courtesy of Alice Boman, Efterklang, The Innocence Mission and Julianna Barwick.
And a whole lot more.

Mark Whitby - February 2020
With tracks from France's Nursery, PC Toys from Germany Ultramerda - Italians on a Japanese label - in the show this month, we declare our intention to continue to look to Europe and beyond for its inspirations whatever narrow-minded zealotry consumes our homeland at the moment. In a similar spirit we present featured compilations from Hamburg's Saturate label and Australia's Chapter Music, the latter in aid of the Australian bushfire appeal.
In addition to all that, there's a new session from the always wonderful Vert:x plus new tracks from, among others, The Lovely Eggs, Skullfuck Jackson and Yorkston/Thorne/Khan, a cracking split cassette release from Greek label Several Minor Promises and sumptuous reissues from Ogytanaa Show Band and Lee 'Scratch' Perry.

Pete Jackson - February 2020
As well as Pete returning from the wilderness to present his first proper show in months, there's loads of artists he's fond of coming back from some time off too.
Expect to hear great new things from The Blue Giant Zeta Puppies (in a new collaborative project), Dementio13, Cornershop, Dead Sea Apes, Revbjelde and the mighty Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs.
There's also lots of new tunes from artists we haven't played here before, like Gladys Lazer, Billy Brillantine and Fly Pan Am, as well as Finnish blues rock, raunchy Swiss electro-pop, groovy Somalian disco and a couple of awesome re-issues from The Chasms and Gong.

Rocker - February 2020
Two hours from Rocker this month, with an exclusive debut session from Bristol psych-rockers Rauschenberg, and new tracks from Jetstream Pony; Seablite; The Flatmates; The Just Joans; Jez Lowe; Jeanines; European Sun; Dark Thoughts; The Drain On The Balcony; Darren Hayman and The Total Rejection.
There's electronica from Marc Romboy remixed by Ben Lukas Boysen; Martin Buttrich and Space Motion gives a new twist to a classic by Silicone Soul.
This month's Educating Elizabeth record is a 1966 release from the sadly recently departed Lorraine Chandler while this month's Rocker's Shellac Attack finds one of the original rock'n'rollers in a mournful country mood in 1958.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: The magic power of joy re-unites all that custom has divided, all men become brothers under the sway of its gentle wings. A little sexist but you get the idea.

Sean Hocking - February 2020
We start the show this month with the great grime diss off of 2020 between Wiley & Stormzy. I'm still not quite sure why they are going at each other like hammer and tongs but it's certainly much more entertaining than the Brit Pop battles of the 90's. For some odd reason Black Midi join the party with a song dissing Ed Sheehan that we had to feature too.
Two great women DJ's and producers have my attention this month Haai & Octa Octa, both of whom create wonderfully warm and danceable work with an edge I'm not hearing from many male producers at the moment. Looking forward to discovering more of their work.
Brand new singles from Liverpool's Psycho Comedy, London singer songwriter Lou Terry, Wisconsin's Disq and everybody's current flavour of the month, Kassa Overall. The standout new artist for me is London based Lia Mice.
Ring of Fire remembers Neil Innes who passed away last month with a track from both the Rutles & The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, a band who we'd love newer acts coming up, to listen to more. Their aesthetic still sounds pretty eccentric in this day and age which is fairly impressive for a band who released their last album almost 50 years ago (yes there was an album in 2007) but prior to that their last album was released in 1972.
Lots of favourites new and old in the show and we'll let you discover them without further heavy handed introductions from me. I will make one exception though, Insanlar - Kime Ne (Ricardo Villalobos Mix 1) 12'. 15 minutes of Turkish meets minimalist tech genius, one of my favourite 12's ever, hoping that you feel the same way too.

Thomas Blatchford - February 2020
Thomas comes at you in February from an Australia that is mostly on fire, charred dust and smoke in the very air, the midnight chimes of the Doomsday clock due to strike midnight long before Big Ben will, and uh ... fancy listening to some records?
In this month's lark-filled double-hour Thomas lays a virtual flower for both Norma Tanega and Neil Innes; has a slew of reissues to get pumped about from Lightning Bolt, Katawa Singers and P.H.F.; urges you to consider recent albums by Ostraaly, Diploid and DJ Speedsick; plays the then-current #1 in the Official UK Singles Chart (physical version); and spins several tracks released to raise money for bushfire relief efforts. I like bread!

Trev - February 2020
My first show of 2020 is three hours packed with fizzing electronica, ambient drones and broken techno, add to this a smattering of sparkling guitar pop and the show is cracking introduction to the new year/decade.
There are new tunes from Peaness, Porridge Radio, Alex Chilltown and AJJ and a couple of songs from new Birmingham band Wiiince - who feature former Ace Bushy Striptease members in their ranks.
Wired and wonderful electronica this month from Beckton Alps2, Minos, Lite Fails, Alf Champion and a 12 minute epic from Mackintosh Plus. Elsewhere I've unearthed some old school indiepop from the likes of Nah, My Light Shines For You, Tampopo and Crystal Furs.
And in shop corner we are firmly planted in the mid 70s with a couple of stone cold classics from NEU! and Television.
